 May 2 - DARPA Is Planning to Hack the Human Brain to Let Us "Upload" Skills
 Article: Transhumanism

Comment from UTT:
Neuroscientists are in the process of creating what is called "downloadable learning." This means that data input from an external computer sources will be artificially downloaded into human brains to create human-technical hybrids that could be programmed to perform functions that are supposedly beneficial to society. Given the nature of man, such procedures should be considered a danger to the future of mankind.
In March 2016, DARPA - the U.S. military's "mad science" branch - announced their Targeted Neuroplasticity Training (TNT) program. The TNT program aims to explore various safe neurostimulation methods for activating synaptic plasticity, which is the brain's ability to alter the connecting points between neurons - a requirement for learning. DARPA hopes that building up that ability by subjecting the nervous system to a kind of workout regimen will enable the brain to learn more quickly.

 May 7 - Apocalypse Soon: Scientific And Religious Leaders Both Agree That Cataclysmic Disasters And Mass Death Are In Humanity's Future
 Article: Signs Of The Last Times

Comment from UTT:
Scientific predictions seem to confirm the biblical revelation that we are living in perilous and catastrophic times. As Jesus said, "when these things begin to happen - look up for your redemption draws nigh." Many Christians have rejected Bible prophecy and the warnings which help to understand our times.
Are we on the verge of the worst times in all of human history? We live at a moment when prominent leaders in the scientific world and in the religious world are both urgently warning that humanity could soon be facing a nightmarish apocalyptic future. Weather patterns are rapidly changing, the crust of our planet is becoming increasing unstable, "superbugs" that are resistant to antibiotics threaten to completely render our best medical treatments obsolete, the number of global terror attacks continues to rise year after year, and thanks to weapons of mass destruction humanity now has the capability of completely destroying itself several times over. They often disagree about why it will happen, but an increasing number of scientific and religious leaders have come to the exact same conclusion that the future of humanity is very bleak.

 May 14 - Pope: After Fatima, I entrust people in the Middle East to Mary, Queen of Peace
 Article:Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
Pope Francis, like previous popes, seems to place "Mary" as a key player in the peace process that will unite various religions in the name of Christ.  Nowhere in the Bible do we find mention of the mother of Jesus playing this position. Jesus is the Prince of Peace.
"I entrust to Mary, Queen of Peace, the fate of people affected by wars and conflicts, especially in the Middle East": said Pope Francis after the Regina Caeli prayer, the first after the His return last night from the pilgrimage to the sanctuary of Fatima on May 12 and 13.

 May 15 - Karjat, 3,000 Catholics and non-Catholics celebrate Fatima's centenary. Card Gracias: Pray for Peace (Photo)
 Article: Ecumenical Movement other religions uniting with Roman Catholics

Comment from UTT:
The ecumenical movement promotes the idea that "Mary" is the Queen of Peace. This is also one of the titles of the so-called apparition that took place in Fatima, Portugal. Now Catholics and non-Catholics are believing this myth that has no biblical basis.

Around 3,000 people, Catholics and of other religious confessions, crowded the celebrations for the centenary of the apparitions of Our Lady of Fatima in the sanctuary of Karjat in Maharasthra, the first to be dedicated to the Virgin of the Rosary in Asia.

 May 16 - Few Americans Believe The Bible Is The Literal Word Of God
 Article: Unbiblical Christianity

Comment from UTT:
The percentage of people who believe that the Bible is the Word of God declines every year. The Bible states that faith comes by believing in the Word. Jesus made it clear that before He returned there would only be a remnant who would have faith.

Fewer than one in four Americans just 24 percent believe the Bible is "the actual word of God, and is to be taken literally, word for word," according to a new survey by Gallup.

 May 12 - Want to join Mary in battle? Pray the rosary, cardinal says at Fatima
 Article :Roman Catholic Church And The Last Days

Comment from UTT:
This article lays out the unbiblical idea that praying the rosary will help "Mary" battle evil. It is amazing to see what people are willing to believe when they ignore the Bible.
At a vigil Mass with tens of thousands gathered in the Portugal town of Fatima, Cardinal Pietro Parolin delivered a homily stressing the Virgin Mary's desire to console all humanity and to have humanity join her in prayer against evil. "In the midst of great concern and uncertainty about the future, what does Fatima ask of us? Perseverance in the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, shown daily by the recitation of the Rosary."
